I'm about to buy some cobra front brakes. My stock pads and rotors are pretty worn out so I want to just replace them with the Cobra set-up. I have a couple of questions.

besides the caliper brackets, calipers, rotors and lines, is there ANYTHING else I would need?

My buddy has a 91 GT. If he got the right spindles, could he put my stock brakes on his car?

Unless your doing the Rear also, you dont need caliper Brackets.

For the front you need....
-Calipers
-Lines
-Rotors

To do the Rear all you need it.
-Rotors
-Brackets

V6/Cobra/GT all use the same Rear caliper

....and i think 94/95 cars require a master cylinder swap but i am not sure.

The master cylinder is not necessary the only side effect is a really firm pedal and to me that is a plus.

ok, well i'm about to buy only the front calipers from a guy less than an hour away.

so, all i need to order are the small lines (stanless ones from MM work?)
and rotors and i'm set?

sounds too easy

These are THE ones i'm going to pick up on friday

Yup its that easy. Looks like you will need some pads too. But those look new, so 150-250 is reasonable if not more. Yup just need lines(MM), pads?, and some brembo blanks will set you up.

thanks guys

will stock style pads work with the cobra calipers?

i already have a box of new pads so that would be sweet


oh, and i'm getting them WAY cheaper than 250 :coolsmiley:

you will need pads that are specific to a cobra or that caliper. The two holes on both sides are where the pads "clip" into place.

I don't use anything other than Brembo blanks.
No slotting, no drilling, no nothing.

Yup, Brembo blanks are what to get, no more no less.

+1. Slotting and drilling are useless.

i have been told i could use mine on my car :dunno:

the guy selling those calipers wont answer my calls :tickedoff:

hopefully he will soon, i want them

when i order rotors i'm going to get the dimpled/slotted. they look killer

Dont get dimpled Rotors.

The whole point of the Dimple is so it fills with Brake Dust to look Drilled.... Its Ricer

What is shown in the pictures is worthless to you. Its missing the bracket, and you can't use the stockers.

As for the rotors, slotted, dimpled, drilled, whatever; its all for looks. So I will use the Hands guys word, thats "ricer."

Yes, if he gets some 94-95 spindles and matching ball joints,he's good to go.
